Federer and Djokovic came to watch the game separately, but the Swiss athlete who currently ranks fifth in the world had a better seat. According to Tennis World USA, Federer was invited by the Heat team. Having been invited personally to watch the game, Federer was given the privilege of sitting courtside, and he was delighted enough to share the experience by posting a photo on Twitter.

After the game, Federer was invited to the locker room where he got to spend some time with the Heat players. Dwyane Wade even posted a picture of him with Federer on Instagram with the caption that reads, "Hanging with the great @roger Federer after the game 2nite in our locker room, we have something in common, we're both 32 and they love to call us old, #Champions @Enuffsaid #StillGettingitdone."
Djokovic, on the other hand, came with some of his friends. He was in the stands.
2014 Miami Masters
Both Federer and Djokovic have cruised their ways easily into the fourth round of the 2014 Miami Masters. Federer secured his spot in the quarterfinals after beating Dutch Thiemo de Bakker. He is set to clash with French athlete Richard Gasquet next.
"I'm feeling really good with my game," Federer told NDTV Sports. "My confidence is high and I'm moving well, I'm excited about how I've been playing," he added. Federer and Gasquet had met in November 2013, and according to the Swiss athlete, he will have to study his homework and find out how Gasquet has been playing now.
Djokovic will play against Tommy Robredo in the fourth round of the said tournament. The Serbian athlete leads their head-to-head 5-1.
